Not a quarter, not a whole... just somewhere in between.
Oh. My. God.What a GREAT word!!I'm storing THAT one away for future reference, let me tell you...
Great, indeed."Amberst" was one I used to use a lot. It's being embarrassed for someone who doesn't have the sense to be embarrassed for themselves.
One of my favourite words is a medical term-- not very NICE, really but I love the way it sounds:"Petechiae" (puh-TEE-key-eye) are actually tiny little broken capillary blood vessels. It just sounds too "jaunty" to be so nasty!!!
pg: I sure could use a friend who would be "Amberst" for me.cg: Sounds like what the former governor of New York sees with.
itzy:I am often amberst for myself; I think that's allowed and I think it also qualifies as a triple entendre. Or maybe...wait. Maybe it cancels itself out then, since if you're embarrassed for yourself because you don't have the sense to be embarrassed for yourself you just ruined the opportunity to be amberst.Or would that be auto-amberst?Annie will know. I'm 46. My head hurts.
